Apparently shaken by the possibility of the BJP eating into her vote-bank in UP, BSP chief Mayawati on Tuesday questioned Narendra Modi’s claim of belonging to backward caste and challenged him to reveal the same.

“If he belongs to backward caste, why doesn’t he tell people his exact caste? she quizzed.

Condemning Modi’s interpreting Congress’ allegation of his doing ‘neech politics (mean politics)’ as lower caste politics, she said the BJP’s PM candidate was playing mischief to make a dent into the BSP’s OBC and Dalit votes.

She also questioned as to why the Congress and the Samajwadi Party had not condemned Modi’s attempt to give play the caste card in the remaining two phases of voting in the state.

“Modi’s attempt to give a new caste angle comes after he failed to comunalise the polls even after addressing a rally in Faizabad with Lord Rama picture on the dais and referring to Ram Raj again and again,” she claimed.
